The Command & Conquer series is about to enter into those awkward teenage years as it prepares to celebrate its 13th birthday. But this is one of those celebrations where the birthday kid gives you
the presents. I know
. This Sunday, August 31st, you can download the first Command & Conquer: Red Alert
for free. There's no better four-letter f-word in the English language. (Well...) But not only that, if you pre-order Red Alert 3, then you'll also get Red Alert 2 for free, too. That's the "Red Alert 3 Step."
- Step 1 -- Download the original Red Alert from www.RedAlert3.com starting Sunday, August 31st. For free.
- Step 2 -- Pre-Order Red Alert 3 from participating retailers and receive Red Alert 2. For free.
- Step 3 -- Pick up your pre-ordered copy of Red Alert 3 when the game hits this holiday season. (Not for free. Red Alert 3 is $49.99 standard edition, $64.99 premier edition.)
That's three games for as little as 50 bucks. And that comes fully equipped with a Maxim-worthy cast including Jenny McCarthy (aka Hot Allied Barracks Girl), Gemma Atkinson (aka Hot Allied Lieutenant), Gina Carano (aka Hot Russian Poster Girl), Autumn Reeser (aka Hot Mystery Girl?), and Kelly Hu (aka Hot Mystery Girl #2). Sorry. Didn't mean to turn this into Spike TV.
